Marie du Plessis of Phalaborwa, Limpopo, claims she paid R7200 for accommodation at the church's school of healing - but her 14-year-old daughter Samantha was not healed.

The accommodation fee was for 18 days, but they only stayed for 15.

The school was supposed to refund R1200, but it has not. When she rings the number given to her there is no answer.

Du Plessis and her daughter moved from Phalaborwa, leaving behind father and husband, Solomon, and 17-year-old daughter Candy.

"My daughter loved Pastor Chris and she was the one who suggested that we take her to the school of healing," Du Plessis said. "She watched him on television and saw him 'heal' people.

"She hoped that he would heal her."

Du Plessis said she earned R4500 a month and could not afford to pay for their stay.

"My husband paid but he was suspicious from the outset," she said. "One day he called and suggested that the whole thing was a scheme and I did not know what to say."

"I saw a woman walking around the school. After a while she sat down on a wheelchair.

"I couldn't understand what was going on. I was shocked. I decided we should go home because there was no way my daughter would be healed in that place."

Du Plessis said another wheelchairbound man from Namibia had been at the school for about six weeks.

"He left without being healed."
